No Matter The Weather You Can Still Treat Your Feet

Summer may officially be over according to the calendar, but the weather seems to be holding up quite well in many places. Where I live there have been quite a few pleasantly warm days even though September is nearly over. This in turn means a few more days of sandal-wearing fun. However, I've learned the hard way that if you're going to wear open-toed shoes you better make sure your toes are ready to be displayed.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much a mani/pedi-kind of girl. I mean, I love getting them when time (and money) permits but I usually neglect my nails until I happen to glance at my hands or feet more closesly and gasp in horror. For instance one day, well into sandal-season, I happened to glance down at my feet and noticed they were, for lack of a better term, "jacked up." They were in serious need of makeover if they were going to ever see the light of day in public. So I hauled myself over to the nearest nail place and sheepishly asked for a pedicure. I'm always fascinated by nail people so while my backside was being massaged by the salon's robot chair I was sitting in, I watch as my nail lady meticulously made over my ragged looking feet. A hour later, my shame was washed, buffed, and filed away and my little piggies were looking pretty. Added BONUS: I found a pair of jeweled-starfish Miss Trish sandals on clearance for $12 next door at Target shortly after. Boo-yah!

Notice the flower detailing on the big toes? I've seen this on others but never tried it myself. Turned out quite nice, no?

Absolutely love the jeweled starfish and pearl! Like wearing jewelry, but on my feet.
